A Short Post of Explanation.

This week I deleted two posts.  One on Landmark Forum “Education” and another one on the Atlanta Mayoral Elections.  I did this for reasons that were personal and political.

Landmark Forum  posting was drawing readers from cultnews.com.  That’s ok, but I think my posting my opinions on Landmark took this blog away from the literary objective.  I still hold to them, that Landmark is possibly a dangerous mindtwisting institution, but it doesn’t loom large in my life.  Not at all.  It’s a particular issue with a friend and he will or will not extricate himself  from their hooks. I have other fish to fry.

As to my deleting the Mayoral post: well, the campaign has heated up and it’s really gotten nasty.  I say a pox on all their houses and I’m back to posting poems and stories and some social commentary.  So to those readers who were reading my blog on this event, go to Jim Galloway’s AJC blog where  he does it so much better.   He’s a nice guy, and I have spoke with him at length on these Atlanta issues, and he deserves the readership.

Atlanta politics is predictable and a big Yawn.

    First of all, best wishes for a speedy recovery from the flu! (Probably got it from running around nekkid as a jaybird under the lawn sprinkler, let that be a lesson.) 🙂

    Deleting those posts is a wise move IMHO. Those two subjects tend to provoke intense controversy that can derail all the other stuff your blog is more about. Good thing you didn’t compare Apple versus Windows computers or something really heavy.

    If you have the opportunity, I recommend the book “Japanese Homes and Their Surroundings” by Edward Morse. Written in 1885 – I think the author was a son of Samuel F. B. “Morse Code” Morse – it’s a very readable well-illustrated study of its subject. We borrowed some ideas from it for our house.

    Hi Berowne!

    Yes, sigh….’let that be a lesson’. I think you are right.

    Today it’s 69 degrees and raining on and off and I am looking for a sweater that doesn’t smell of moth balls.

    Life.

    Yes, I think you are right again. Controversy comes in many stripes and sizes and those two were bound to do something. First…..I didn’t expect cultnews.com…whatever that is ……to pick up my blog….but they did…..and that was a bit discomforting. I don’t mind fellow travelers… other literary sites, or even some shibari/bdsm sites (if I know the writer) linking mine to his/hers….but sharing the net with “Madonna…Kabbalah News” was a bit too much. And….loads of readers from there, but they never left a comment. Just read what I said about Landmark. They can get it somewhere else.

    Plus, the Atlanta political scene has heated up over the past few days with some terrible nonsense. Just yesterday an appeal…a memo when out to the public …the black voting public ….to vote black on this mayors election, ..making this rather dogeared race card used once again. Nothing about the merit of the runners, just their skin color being of highest concern. Substitute the word ‘white’ for ‘black’ and here we go again. Nothing changes.

    Just embarrassing from a so-called “International City”. Duh.

    Over that shit. I directed the readers to Jim Galloway’s column from the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) because he collects and publishes the comments and it’s another public circus.

    Oh~ I think I’m a bit familiar with that book! (Morse book) Something about landscaping and house styles and an old samurai house and garden in it?? I remember reading excerpts from the internet a while ago and that sounds right in the time period….

    Oh, that must be lovely, Berowne….designing parts of your house around these principles/stylistic elements.
